    To the family of Raphael Whitfield . I am sorry to read about the loss of your loved one. The pain is tremendous even with the passage of time. There are scriptures in the Bible to help provide relief of grief and distress. Please read Ps 65:2 that reads "The Hearer of prayers a source of comfort in times of grief and distress.

    Deepest sympathy for the Whitfield family. Death was not part of God’s original purpose for us. Our loving God considers death as his enemy - 1 Corinthians 15:26 – “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” Death is an enemy that separates us from our loved ones. When death is removed, we will have the joy of our loved ones being resurrected to enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…forever on earth. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9, 11)

    To the Family: My sympathy to all of you, very sorry for your loss. As Jesus looked to the Heavenly Father, Jehovah, for strength and power in his time of deep sorrow, may you do the same. John 11:39-44. Look forward to the future with confidence that our love ones can live again. John 17:3

    May the God who “binds up the broken-hearted” and “comforts all who mourn” sustain your family during this challenging time.- Isaiah 61:1,2.

    We're so sorry to hear you are suffering the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
